spanning tree problem - BPDU blocking

hi,

Have a look at attachment,there is a 2950 24 port switch , which is connected to 8274 ibm core switch via ethernet.The 2950 has two fibre modules connected to 4507 switch with hsrp and etherchannel configured.

The 2950 switch ethernet link connected to 8274 ibm core switch is

fluctuating. at rare cases the ethernet led truns amber and link goes down for few seconds.

On observing the 2950 switch, it was found that there is no issue

with the hardware , It is a BPDU problem , where BPDU packets are

being generated by both data centre switch and IBM core switch. Any

one of the BPDU has to be blocked inorder to avoid the link failure.

The following commands were tested in the cisco 2950 switch .

1. Spanning-tree Port fast has been enabled.(for testing purpose)

2. Spanning-tree portfast bpdufilter default.

3. Making fastethernet 0/1 as trunklink.

4. Changing Spanningtree priority value.

5. Enabling Spanningtree gaurd root.

Note :

====

The Ethernet port of 8274 IBM core switch connecting 2950 switch has to be

made as trunk, since it is an uplink to 2950 switch..it is not yet checked as we dont have access to ibm switch.

it is sure that only configuration changes has to be done at 2950 side, since hardware has been replaced last before week and old conf is missing, earlier it was working setup.

i have pasted the error message,configuration details of 2950 switch.

Re: spanning tree problem - BPDU blocking

Since you mentioned that the links are fiber uplinks running echannel, I suggest you use UDLD and monitor the results in a period of 20 - 60 minutes

The link below will give you a detailed guide on what UDLD is and how it works.

Please do post if this solves the issue

Re: spanning tree problem - BPDU blocking

Hi Babu,

Just go thro. the following link explaining various reasons for link fluctuation due to stp inconsistencies,

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk389/tk621/technologies_tech_note09186a00801d11a0.shtml

I think your ibm switch port may be in 802.1Q trunk mode. Pls. chk. If else, see you case come under which category in that link.

Hope it will help
